In this sparkling comedy, first staged in 1905, Andrew Undershaft, a millionaire armaments dealer, loves money and despises poverty. His energetic daughter Barbara, however, is a devout major in the Salvation Army. She sees her father as just another soul to be saved. But when the Salvation Army needs funds to keep going, it is Undershaft who saves the day.
This play is a magnificent! It makes one reconsider most of their religous, and political beliefs. The numerous allusions add humor and depth to the novel and also create controversy. Did anyone think that Babara was an abstract representation of Jesus, Peter Shirley-St. Peter, and undershaft-God?
